Lost Map Showcase: The Pictish Trail + Tuff Love & Monoganon

New Continental South Meadow Lane, Preston, Lancashire, UK

The remote island of Eigg, quietly floating among the inner Hebrides of Scotland, is home to 87 people, about 900 sheep, 58 cows, a well-stocked, fully-licensed tea room, and a green caravan.

That green caravan is home to The Pictish Trail … AND (gasp!) ALSO the country’s newest and most eclectic record label and collective - Lost Map!

Having run Fence Records for over 10 years from a sleepy fishing village on the east coast, lo-fi troubadour The Pictish Trail ventured out west and rebooted the label with a new name, and a fresh lick o’ wood stain. The existing label roster joined him - ethereal electro-shanty guru Seamus Fogarty, slow motion chanteuse Rozi Plain, breakneck indie-rockers Kid Canaveral, post-folk dreamers eagleowl, and the fizzy scotch-pop of Randolph’s Leap - as did the commitment to a collective ethos, and keeping it DIY, fo’ sho'.

On a mission to spread the good word Lost Map to all and sundry, THE PICTISH TRAIL is now working on his third LP, whilst plotting a tour to celebrate the nationwide release of Secret Soundz Vol.1 and Vol.2 as a double album set this Spring. He’ll be performing a wide selection of his wonky pop anthems along with a few new tunes, probably aided by a few electronic gadgets, his guitar and at least a pint or three.

“There’s an emotional purity to these songs, which illuminate the shadows between Screamadelica and The Flaming Lips.” Album review, 9 out of 10, UNCUT

"Compulsory listening. Indebted to Hot Chip, the Beta Band and Paul McCartney, this is charming, fresh and quietly outré" ✮✮✮✮ The Observer

“Enchanting, home-made electro-pop” ✮✮✮✮ MOJO

“An infectious grab bag of musical styles ” ✮✮✮✮ Q

For this showcase tour, Pictish will perform a few sets during the night, in between performances from two of the latest additions to the Lost Map label - please welcome his tour buddies, TUFF LOVE and MONOGANON…

Tuff Love

Tuff Love are Julie, Suse and Michael - two girls and a dude from Glasgow who cut beautifully distorted guitar gems. Their debut, Junk EP (out May 5th, via Lost Map), is the sound of pure summer; dazzling, sun-streaked fuzz pop, with soft, burning melodies, and big smiling harmonies. They're like a DIY version of all the best bits of Electrelane crossed with early-MBV and a bit of Breeders swagger - and they're gonna make your year a whole lot brighter.

"Deranged, stuttering alt rock with a heart of gold" Clash

“Shimmering lo-fi pop without the fuss and the pretention; a short injection, but it stays in your system. It’s like Pixies’ Kim Deal doing pure pop, and it sounds absolutely brilliant.” Ravechild


Monoganon (“mo-NOG-OH-non”) also hail from Glasgow, although lead singer-songwriter John B McKenna currently finds himself eating and sleeping in the Swedish city of Malmö. Their most recent album, Family, was the debut release on Lost Map last October; a kaleidoscopic psyche-grunge masterpiece, awash with layers of spaced-out weirdness, but also teeming with melody.

"A disorientating mesh of angular guitar, off-kilter beats and mood piece confessionals … that slip under the skin and stay there" ✮✮✮✮ The Skinny

“The record is truly exquisite; our own answer to Bon Iver’s For Emma, Forever Ago, perhaps - certainly as personal an experience for McKenna, and every bit as accomplished and heartrendingly beautiful” The Metro

Doors open at 8pm on Saturday 24th May 2014.
